Bombas Socks Are Making Sure That You Never Lose A Sock Again

If I could get a dollar for every sock that I’ve lost in the wash, I would be living it up in a multi-billion dollar mansion on a tropical island with 5 butlers and my very own beach. While this is merely a pipe dream, we still have some news for you that is almost as good. There is a company that is trying to make up for your washing machine’s bad habit of swallowing up newly bought socks (finally).

Bombas, a name you may recognize from the company’s appearance on Shark Tank, is offering a Laundry Back Guarantee on any socks that disappear in the laundry. That’s right, you’re never going to experience the devastation of losing a sock in the washer again! Need a pair of new socks now? Buy any pair of Bombas socks before November 15th 2018. If one of the socks gets lost within one year of purchase, all you have to do is reach out to the Happiness Team, aka Customer Service (how cute!), and they will help you get a new pair FOR FREE!

Sounds too good to be true? It’s actually just one of Bombas’s many bomb-ASS deeds. The company, which was founded in 2013 by David Heath and Randy Goldberg, not only prides itself in amazing sock quality but also in giving back to those in need. With socks being the “#1 most requested clothing item at homeless shelters,” Bombas has decided to fight this issue by donating one pair of socks to someone in need for every pair purchased. “Bombas exists to help solve this problem, to support the homeless community, and to bring awareness to an under-publicized problem in the United States,” states their website. So far the company has donated approximately 9.3 million pairs (and it becomes more every second as their website shows).

As for quality, Bombas socks have been designed to combat every issue that you have found yourself having with a sock. Annoying rips? Check. Blisters from ankle socks? Check. Uncomfortable seams? Check. Name any issue you have with a sock, Bombas most likely has you covered!

The company offers everything from work to gym socks for men, women and children. Prices range from $10 for a single pair for $122 dollars for a 12-pack of women’s socks. Children’s socks are less pricey. While these prices may seem high, if you calculate how much money you’ve wasted for all of your lost socks, it might just be worth it.
